Do you approve or disapprove of the way John Kasich is handling his job as Governor?

54-32 approve

...

If the election for Governor were being held today, and the candidates were Richard Cordray the Democrat and John Kasich the Republican, for whom would you vote?

47-36 Kasich

If the election for Governor were being held today, and the candidates were Ed Fitzgerald the Democrat and John Kasich the Republican, for whom would you vote?

47-33 Kasich

...

From June 18 - 23, Quinnipiac University surveyed 941 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 3.2 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.

So Obama saved Kasich's Administration. That's bipartisanship for you.

Unemplyment is (relatively) low, Kasich's come out as a moderatish hero with seeking to expand Medicaid coverage (even though he got stymied by his own overwhelmingly GOP legislature), and people are forgetting, and thus forgiving, the whole Senate Bill 2 (removing public employees' right to collective bargaining) debacle.

Russ Feingold was leading and Blanche Lincoln was tied in June, 2009. I'm not saying Kasich will be defeated, but 1 year and a half is a lot in politics.

That's what moving to the center does. Sadly for you Corbett didn't get the memo.

How do you go from voting for Obama twice to being happy with Kasich?

If the Democrats have as favorable of an environment in 2014 as Republicans had in 2010, sure, Kasich could still very well lose.

^^^ This.

I'd also like to add Kasich has done a number of other popular things that don't quite reach the national news, like getting Mayor Frank Jackson's plan to revamp the Cleveland schools passed. Kasich has been acting quite humbled since Senate Bill 2.

Also, the Democrat that is likely to get the nomination (Ed Fitzgerald) isn't a very good candidate. I'd be quite shocked if Cordray is willing to risk running against a reasonably popular incumbent, so they'll probably be stuck with Fitz.

Since when is signing a state budget that involves anti-abortion legislation including required ultrasounds, de-funding of Planned Parenthood, and shutting down abortion clinics a bi-partisan move by Kasich?

At this point, the chances of unseating Kasich are as good as getting rid of Nathan Deal in Georgia, but his approval is only bound to get worse from hereon in.

If the environment was favorable to democrats, Blanche would have lost anyway.

This really means nothing a year and a half out.  You can be sure he will be heavily targeted by unions with ads in 2014 and whether he loses or not things will certainly narrow.

It'll be worth watching if this jump in approval is the norm, or will it go back down to Scott/Corbett levels.

It's been on the upward trend for months.
